The DC LERA Board of Governors invites you to the monthly luncheon meeting...

Noon – Wednesday, February 24, 2016
at the historic Woman’s National Democratic Club

Anne-Marie Slaughter
President and CEO of New America
Speaking on
Unfinished Business:
Women Men Work Family

After distinguished service as Professor of International, Foreign, and Comparative Law at Harvard Law School and Dean of Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Dr. Slaughter accepted her dream job under Secretary Clinton as the first female director of policy planning at the U.S. State Department. The conflicting needs of parenting and profession, however, led her in 2011 to return to an academic career that gave her more time with her family.

This experience led Dr. Slaughter to question long-standing assumptions about work, life, and family. Her 2012 article for The Atlantic, “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All,” created a firestorm, sparked intense national debate, and became the most-read article in the magazine’s history.  In 2015, Dr. Slaughter published the highly acclaimed “Unfinished Business: Women Men Work Family,” challenging basic assumptions and presenting a vision of what true equality between men and women really means and providing a common banner under which both men and women can advance and thrive.

The Officers and Board of Governors of the Washington, DC, Chapter of the Labor and Employment Relations Association invite you to join us for lunch on February 24th to hear Dr. Slaughter speak on her experiences and vision.
